Sounds like a loose part inside?

Whenever I hold my phone upright and tap toward the top of the screen (even very lightly), the phone makes a weird clicking sound coming from inside. It sounds to me like the small vibrating spinning part that makes the phone vibrate. I don't know if it's just my model of the device of if this is normal but it's very annoying and noticeable. Also, if I shake the phone even a little I can hear the clicky sound. Not sure if I should take it back and replace it but I wanted to see if anyone else had this problem first?

Honestly guys, this sound has always been in HTC and Samsung devices that I've had, and to be honest I didn't hear it in my S4,ehich was Prolly the first device in a while where I wouldn't hear a rattle. Someone mentioned a long time ago that's its the part for the vibration/haptic but I don't see how that could be. But yes, I hear it too, and have no clue what the hell it is lol

Haha, holy cap, it really is the AutoFocus Sensor. Opening the camera, then tapping the phone, no rattle.

That's awesome, all this time, I had no idea. Appreciate the link

Well that is disappointing. Guess I'm going to have to try and get used to it. Thanks for the info.

How is this dissapointing? I never even noticed this till I came across this thread

How much could you possibly be shaking your phone for this to be a problem?
